On November 30th and December 1st, 2012, the Jordan Center and the Institute for French Studies will host an international symposium at NYU’s Maison Francaise. Our topic is “Cultures of War: From the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution.” This event will bring together academics and military professionals, historians and literature specialists, hailing from Russia, France, and North America. The overarching goal is to broaden our understanding of the long period in question by fostering conversation among people who do not often get a chance to hear each other’s perspectives and draw on each other’s expertise. To that end, in addition to keynote addresses by historians of France and Russia (David Bell and Peter Holquist), the symposium will include panels and roundtables on such topics as Russian vs. French mythologies of war, homefronts, and the language and literature of warfare.
